After Sunday's Oracle Users Forum, there's even more happening with user groups at Oracle OpenWorld.

You made it to the user group sessions at Moscone West on Sunday morning and you’re wondering what user group activities are planned for the rest of Oracle OpenWorld. Or perhaps, your alarm didn’t go off and you missed the sessions. And now you want to commune with your community. No problem.
Stop by the Oracle User Group Pavilion at Moscone West, Level 2 Overlook 2A. Nine user groups—IOUG, OAUG, ODTUG, APOUC, EOUC, LAOUC, Quest International Users Group, HEUG, and OHUG—have presentation kiosks and representatives to answer any questions about a user group or Oracle OpenWorld activities as well as to help you register to join a group.
While most of the user group sessions were held on Sunday, several groups have activities during the week.
-ODTUG has 13 sessions Monday through Thursday on a variety of topics.
-Quest has seven sessions for PeopleSoft users and seven sessions for JD Edwards users during the week. Quest is also hosting a meet-up with food, drinks, and games for Peoplesoft and JD Edwards users on Tuesday evening, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., at the ThirstyBear Restaurant and Brewery on Howard Street.
-OAUG has a booth in the Moscone West Exhibition Hall and a live radio broadcast during Exhibition Hall hours. According to Cindy Force of OAUG, Oracle representatives and members of the user group will participate “to share tips and tricks for using Oracle software. It’s about users helping other users with information.” OAUG members will also deliver educational sessions focusing on applications throughout the week.
-IOUG has 12 sessions after Sunday, covering topics that include big data, Oracle Database 12c, security, and cloud. The group is also hosting a meet-up on Monday.
